I am going to build core i7 system in the very near future.

Here are the parts that I pick.

Cpu: core i7 920

Mb: GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD4P LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ram: OCZ platinum 12 GB DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cpu Cooler:
1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N...

GPU: Any suggestion? Must be better than ATI 4850

The rest of the system will come from Q6600 system. My requirements:

I do not play game much. But, do photo processing. Watch blu ray movies. Display runs at full hd resolution. I am happy with ati 4850. Since I am upgrading the system, I want something better than 4850. No plan to do sli or xfire. Ati or Nvidia is open. I pick the above motherboard as I need a lot of memory for virtualization. Please let me know if i can replace with better parts or cheaper parts that you recommend.

Total: $622 without gpu if I go with Noctua
Total: $617 without gpu if I go with v8

Thank you for your help.

Looks good.

Either cooler will be good.
Also look at the Xigmatek dark night S1283v which has had some good reviews and is cheaper:

If the 4850 suits you, why not keep it?

The next step up would be GTX260-216 or 4870

Another step would be a GTX275

Thank you for your inputs. I want to oc to 3.8 to 4.0. I need a good cooling solution.

i will be selling 4850, so i need another one. How does 4890 do? GTX will be faster than 4890. Right?
